Arsenal's board are urging manager Arsene Wenger to go on a spending spree once Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri are sold. The Daily Mail says Wenger has been told he should spend nearly all of the £58million recouped from the pending sales of Fabregas to Barcelona and Nasri to Manchester City on improving his Arsenal squad.
A Gunners source said: "The manager will be given the majority of the money from those deals, if they go through, to reinvest in the squad. The money's there if the manager wants to spend it."
Wenger still has £20m from his original transfer kitty to spend and the Arsenal board want the Frenchman to sign replacements to match the quality of Fabregas and Nasri.
